The built environment’s biggest international photography competition, run by the Chartered Institute of Building, opens for voting today with 12 finalists in the running for the £3,500 cash prize.
This group improves the Institute’s recognition in other parts of Europe.
We do this in a number of ways: through our membership of AEEBC (the European Association for Building Surveyors and Construction Experts); through liaison with other professional bodies in Europe; through contributing to consultations on new European legislation and regulations; and through our involvement with pan-European research projects.
Back in 2008, the CIOB conducted a survey into how well the industry managed complex building projects. We analysed data from more than two thousand schemes and found that more than two-thirds were not completed in the time allowed. What was more, almost a fifth of these delayed projects were more than three months late.
